John Rich

October 8, 1932 — April 20, 2024

    It is with great sadness we are announcing the passing of John. He lived a full and productive life for 91 years and it was time for him to join his beloved wife Pat, after over 29 years of living without her. Mentally, he was very sharp right up to the end. 
    John is survived by 3 children: Debbie DeCarlo (Mike); Kathy Stemmer (Mark); Tim Rich (Marilyn); 6 grandchildren; 10 great grandchildren and his brother Robert Rich.
    There will be a Celebration of Life and Graveside Farewell on Tuesday May 7, 2024 at 11:30 am. The celebration and burial will take place at Forest Lawn in Cypress, CA located at 4471 Lincoln Ave. The celebration will be held in the Patriots Chapel followed by Military Honors at the graveside.
    In lieu of flowers, we would suggest making a donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Huntington Beach. This is an organization he was very involved in for many years and it was very dear to him.
